Lasers & Lightning ! 2012 has arrived!

First off, Happy new year dear readers! I hope you had as much fun as I did for the count down last night!

Actually I was working. Taking photos at Pargon X3 last night. Me and Desmond finished shooting around 3am. And when we got out we notice something, still on going. 

Lightning!

We saw it when we arrived at Travillion. But didn't expect it to last so long. So we decided to go try and catch lightning. I have never done so, and didnt know whats the setting like. Dont even know how to process the images correctly hehe! Maybe Im just tired and blur.

Photo is a bit blur as I had to crop away the foregound. I didnt have a tripod, so had to leave the camera at the edge. Desmond got 3 really full exploding lightning. All mine was, shy and not present! haha! Does that spell the luck of my year for 2012?

This was my better shot of the night. But it was more majestic and scarier actually. Intense power of the lightning was amazing. 

This was the last, lightning I got. A small one. Desmond had alaready packed up his tripod and was ready to go. I'm jealous, hehe he got 2 really awesome light display. But I guess I will have to be content with what I have ya? 

Anyways, we were shooting for about 40 mins and then head to Petanak Market for our 1st meal of 2012 at 430am hehe

By the time I reached home and got to bed it was already 5+. Ah... What a wonderful night!

 

2012 is here! May your year be filled with fun, joy and awesomeness!

Wesak Day Celebrations 2009 - Kuching

:) it was my first time taking photo’s of Wesak day celebrations in my home town. All this while I have been avoiding it because of the traffic jam which is usually associated with it.

I already uploaded the images to the gallery, click HERE to jump directly to it.

The procession started to gather at the Jubilee Ground, Kuching. People started to gather from 5pm onwards. Things started to roll about 6pm or so.

The skies looked like it was going to give us a wash. But in the end, it didn’t even rain to the relief of many people.

Prior to the “flag off” many of those who are participaing were practicing their moves and chants.

Spotted this adorable young lady standing all alone, calm.

The 2 images below very funny. The young girl was agitated by the photographer taking her photo :D

Sweating for a cause

One of my most fav shot of the day.

This is my other most fav shot of the day. hahah! sunset over the city. WOW!

Hah~ another of one of my fav shots of the night!

The procession went on from there to a few roads around the city and then ended at about 930 pm. I was not there, as soon as 80% of the teams rolled out I also had to go as there was another event which I wanted to shoot. But that is a post for another day~

Cheers! and happy wesak day everyone!
